Mark Caviness grew up an urban cowboy. Being a Southern young man in Texas, he played football, enjoyed a couple beers with his buddies while two-stepping at Gilly’s. In 1984, he married Angie, the woman of his dreams and shortly thereafter their family grew with daughters Ashley and Brook.

As life takes shape around young families where the man of the home doesn’t know God, trials often become insurmountable. For Mark and Angie, divorce loomed, but the love of their baby girl saved the marriage. In March of 2000, the strength of these bonds were stretched to their limits, when Ashley died in a horrible train accident. As often happens, Mark sought the only one who could fulfill an empty void in his life, Jesus Christ.

Today Mark and Angie remain steadfast in the Lord. Mark also enjoys sharing his testimony and helps others face trials through gaming friendships on Clash of Clans. In the clan, he’s part of the Clan for Jesus. For Mark and many others, gaming doesn’t have to be a waste of time, but a chance to connect with others and encourage others in the Lord.
